My Travel Story

by: Sam Watson Start Date: May 19, 2017 - End Date: Jan 3, 2018
I have always wanted to volunteer in another country to help those less fortunate than I and share my love and happiness over to them to help brighten their days.
I have a passion for help people and brightening the future of others. I am currently studying teaching (and will be completed by the time i head to SA) and I will be able to use my passion in teaching and assisting to better the childrens learning and happiness.
I am extremely excited about this project and I would greatly appreciate it if you were able to assist me in helping the orphans by donating. I am so excited to get over their and help the children. I will use the donations to better the childrens day and to assist with buying supplies and resources for the orphanage :)

Thank you

  • Helping Those Less Forunate

    I am currently trying to raise funds for a volunteer trip to South Africa's Kruger National Park to work at DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage. While there we will be dedicating 3 weeks to help small children and orphaned animals in the orphanage as well as heading to a family home and helping out with their day to day lives.

    “DAKTARI Bush School & Wildlife Orphanage is an NPO founded in 2006 with the goal of enabling local children to have a better quality of life. DAKTARI works to educate and inspire children to value their environment and stimulate community projects.

    Located in the South African bush near Kruger National Park, DAKTARI provides the perfect environment for children to learn about their natural heritage. The children visit DAKTARI for 5 days to complete the teaching program and work with the animals in our wildlife orphanage. International volunteers teach the lessons and guide the children in caring for the animals.

    DAKTARI also runs an outreach program to provide a greater impact to the community. The weekly Eco-Club allows children of all ages to learn about the environment at their schools and help with community projects. The career guidance and workshops we host in the community help adults and youth gain employment in the poorest province of South Africa."
